the resigned gamer, everything I hate about the thing I love the most

video game haiku from the resigned gamer

When the point on a great journey is reached where there are less days ahead than behind, it becomes hard not to look backwards. There's nothing wrong with reminiscing, but resist rumination, for without your eyes open you'll surely stumble, or worse: miss the rest of the trip. Instead, focus on your companions in trek, and those you meet along the way. There is so much more to see.

This week's haiku go out to all who savor each moment and seek the wisdom of the road.


walk in other’s shoes
immerse in experience
enjoy little things

heed wisened elders
even be they pruny hags

healing herbs they make

universal rule
never begrudge nourishment


don’t cross fat warlords
they can be irrational
spoil your holiday

rage at enemies
only causes poor grammar

anger leads astray

when you are outgunned
good to have a ninja friend
invisible, go!

loyalty is key
but remember and respect

all friends have limits

a man accepts help
but abstains from usury

always pay your debts

patience lucky boy

waiting can be a blessing

and this, too, shall pass

must keep moving on
allowing no moss to grow

find new, tasty soups

Thanks for reading! Please come back next Friday, when we'll see what Heart of China can teach us about love!
